Jordan Peterson

"Postmodernism and the Mask of Compassion".

This discussion was recorded this month at Harvard University (where Peterson taught previously for 5 years) and he has much to say of great relevance about the disturbing, ongoing march of Marxism through the institutions. I remember being at a lecture last year from Professor Niall Ferguson where he also made reference to identity politics, the culture of complaint and the rise of the 'snowflake' generation - particularly in universities. Peterson is a passionate advocate and what he has to say is compelling. The first 25 minutes drag a little but he's on fire after that. He didn't come right out and express the obvious; that all this is about control, regulation of human behaviour and speech!
